Regular four cylinder drivers- We
were asked if offset wheels are allowed. The answer is yes.
However, you must meet the weight percentages in the rules
and the offset on the front & rear must match per side. In
other words, if you have a 2” offset on the RF, the RR needs
to be 2” as well, etc.
Evergreen Raceway Revises
Remainder of 2016 Schedule
Due to the number of divisions racing per day and also due
to the number of cars in some of those divisions, Evergreen
Raceway has made its final schedule change of the 2016
racing season. Drivers and fans were waned weeks in advance
that the changes were coming and with its official release,
track management is excited for the remainder of the season.
Just a reminder: What we have been doing with the
4-Cylinder Enduro cars being allowed to race with our
regular Four Cylinder division will continue through the end
of the season or until further notice. This has been a
success and we’d like to thank all of the Enduro drivers
that gave it a try so far.
If you’re not familiar with this, the Four Cylinder
Enduro cars can compete under the Enduro rules (must meet
Enduro rules) with our regular Four Cylinder division. The
highest finishing Enduro
driver will receive a trophy and each driver that starts the
feature will receive a payout based on where they actually
finish in the feature.
Based on the success, beginning this Sunday, we are
doing the same for the 6/8-Cylinder Enduros, as they can
compete with our regular Factory Stocks. Of course to be
eligible for the highest finishing Enduro car, they must
meet the Enduro rules.
To see the payout for the Four Cylinders and Factory
Stocks, click the ‘Payout’ link.
Several updates have been made and for the most part, track
officials did their absolute best to stick with four
divisions of racing on the card weekly. When meeting over
the weekend, they discussed their first annual ‘King of the
Green’ weekend, which is slated for the weekend of October
15. The last points event of the season will pay 100
championship points to each competitor across the board and
each division will run extended lap events for a higher
purse. More information regarding King of the Green will be
released in the upcoming weeks.

items for the children at the speedway, courtesy of track
fans, drivers, teams and officials. Santa also has a gift
for racers who would like to try Evergreen Raceway.

track’s pit license for the afternoon, which means that they
will be admitted into the pit area for $30 instead of $40.

Evergreen asphalt for the first time, the speedway will lend
them a set of used tires for the afternoon. Drivers that
plan to accept this offer are asked to call the speedway

will race in the same event and the fee to participate
in this race is $10. The pay will be “winner take all”. The first Reverse Redneck Enduro

Evergreen Raceway Releases
Upcoming Schedule Changes
Due to the number of divisions that have been run during the
hot summer months, the staff at Evergreen Raceway has
decided to trim back on the number of divisions.
“Honestly, when we put the schedule together during the
winter we were worried more about getting the schedule out
quickly and didn’t consider how hot the middle of summer
could be for the fans and racers.”, noted speedway promoter,
He continued, “Our plan is to give a division or two off on
a rotating basis. A long day in the heat is rough on
everyone and tempers definitely seem to flare more when
drivers are out battling for wins in it.”
The division that is now scheduled off this Sunday, July 10
is the Street Stocks. The Pro Stocks and Factory Stocks will
be off on Sunday, July 17.
Evergreen Raceway Adds Three
For the first time in years, Evergreen Raceway held two
Karting divisions in conjunction with their Independence
Enduros last Sunday. The interest was there and due to input
from the teams on hand, the speedway has decided to add
three Karting events to their season schedule.
“It’s great for the little kids and little kids at heart”,
noted speedway co-promoter Gene Ostrowski.
“It’s a win-win. They’re excited about racing on the Daytona
of Karting tracks and everyone at the track was thrilled
with the show that they put on. Plus, they are truly the
future of our sport.”

at Evergreen Raceway
Enduro racing has been a popular fixture at Evergreen
Raceway this season and with the support of many seasoned
